Hello Crafty Friends! I hope you are all having a great week. My week is going good and I’m looking forward to the weekend! St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and if you haven’t made a card, now is the perfect time. Crafty Cardz Challenge has a fun themed challenge just for you.
Challenge#127: “ERIN GO BRAUGH”
My 4×4 St. Paddy Day card is below. I used the leprechaun hat from Paper Doll Dress Up and the clover from Give A Hoot. I stamped the background with a Studio g stamp, embossed the hat, glittered the black trim, inked/chalked around each element and even though it doesn’t show the hat was dusted in green Pearl X powder and the clover is painted with green pearlized paint.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I can’t wait to see what you create for this challenge. Happy St. Patrick’s Day and be sure to enter this fun challenge at CardzTv!

Hi Crafty Friends! Are you ready for the next Cricut Cardz Challenge? I hope so, because it starts now!
Challenge #120: “Attitude of Gratitude!” is the theme this week. Make a card for Thanksgiving using any cartridge(s) and colors you’d like.
For my card, I made a shape card using the sweet little squirrel from the Give A Hoot cartridge. I think she tuned out darling.
To embellishment the card, I sponged the darker brown pieces with brown inks, embossed them with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and popped them up on pop-dots. Lastly I gave her a twine bow and an acorn with a handwritten sentiment on it.
I love making shape cards with my Gypsy and Cricut. If you have never made one, be sure to give it a try. They are so fun and always a hit!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please join us at Cardz Tv for this fun Thanksgiving challenge!

Good Morning Crafty Friends! I can’t believe October is flying by so quickly. Halloween will be here in one week! I’m excited since it’s my favorite holiday and I love to hand out candy to the cute kids. But October is not just a time for tricks and treats it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To help promote this worthy cause, why not make a card for a friend or a loved one, as a reminder card for self-exams and mammograms, a card congratulating a breast cancer survivor, or a card of encouragement for someone currently going through the trauma of breast cancer. Also don’t forget to do your own self-exam and get your mammograms!
Challenge#119: “Let’s Hear it for the Girl’s” Make a card for Breast Cancer Awareness, using any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like.
To stamp the background I used an Inkadinkado stamp set called Friendship. I added my own pink ribbon and a tiny ribbon rose that came from my stash. Thank you for coming by and leaving me such sweet comments! I hope you all like this card and join us at CardzTv for this challenge.

Hi Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is doing great and ready for a new Cricut Cardz Challenge! For Challenge #118, “Anything Goes!” Use your Cricut to make a card, layout or craft project using any cartridge(s), any theme and any colors you’d like. Super easy and super fun!
For my design team card I decided to make a New Baby card. One of my best friends had a baby girl recently so I made a couple different baby cards. I think this card is really sweet and of course the Peachy Keen face is adorable. I used the Simply Charmed cartridge and patterned papers from Basic Grey and DCWV.
Thanks for checking out my card and leaving me a comment. Hope to you play along with us at Cardz Tv!
